Interesting to compare
I find it quite curious that if you listen to the original Ray Bradbury story adaptations from the 1940's and 50's done by Suspense and Escape then compare them to these "modern" versions, in most cases the older ones are better! Simply for the overall production quality (most notably the acting) The actors in these newer versions sound uptight, and at times sound like they're reading a script (of course they are, but we're not supposed to notice) Even the sound quality on most is just as good, too. As a long time listener to classic radio I suggest everyone seek out the Suspense and Escape versions. You may be surprised and it's very likely that youll find (like I did years ago) that a lot classic radio shows are Really Good! Find a YouTube channel that focuses on quality and stick with it. There's literally hundreds of thousands of hours of this great entertainment, and it's all free. Start with the two best series: Suspense & Escape. Between the two, there are almost 1300 episodes! (less a couple hundred repeats) Still, there's nearly three years of listening to a different story every night!
